Read this cookbook: “Everything I Want to Eat: Sqirl and the New California Cooking” by Jessica Koslow (Abrams, $45)
By Wendell Brock
It may be premature to call Jessica Koslow the most exciting California chef since Alice Waters. Then again, it might not be.
Inspired by the bountiful fruit of California, Koslow opened Los Angeles’ uber-hip Sqirl as a jam joint in 2011. Today, the breakfast-and-lunch spot that turned humble toast into a “Thing” is where the beautiful people flock to much on Koslow’s fat slabs of burnt brioche slathered with ricotta and jam; her sorrel-pesto rice bowls; and malva pudding cakes.

This Year, Leave It to the Pros
Leave it to Star Provisions and Bacchanalia’s Chef Anne Quatrano to take Thanksgiving dinner to the next level. In addition to sides ($9.95 for small, $19.90 for large) including buttered rutabagas, dressing with apples and sage, braised local collards, creamed onions, Brussels sprouts and bacon and garlicky roasted cauliflower, and traditional apple, pumpkin and pecan pies ($20 each), you can pick up the Rolls Royce of birds. Quatrano sources Heritage Breed Black Turkeys from a small North Carolina family farm, so she can confirm they’re organic, free-range and humanely raised. The turkeys come raw (brined or unbrined), but the super-knowledgeable team at Star Provisions is ready and willing to offer tips on how to cook them to perfection. Don’t leave without a dozen — or two — of the signature thyme-onion rolls.
